If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds.These plants don't fear the cold weather and therefore can be grown in the garden during any time of year.
Generalities Magnolia cylindrica
The Magnolia cylindrica grows erect, developing a short stem with a small crown, usually roundish. This plant in the spring assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 5 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree.
Fertilization Magnolia cylindrica
Letís fertilize the plants when implanting them, or every 2-3 years, towards the end of the winter or beginning of Autumn. A good quantity of organic fertilizer, such as manure or earthworm humus should be mixed to the soil at the foot of the stem; in this manner we will supply it with a good quantity of nutrients and we will also improve the mixture of the soil.
Watering Magnolia cylindrica
Letís avoid watering the the Magnolia cylindrica excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water . We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry.
Treatments Magnolia cylindrica
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
